Shutdown option for Normal User

Here is my concern. With Gnome, and KDE, the normal user (without root privleges) can do a logoff and/or shutdown. I can see logoff being permitted, but should he be able to do a shutdown without being prompted for the root password?
OK, so he can do it. If we take it way, he can still do a shutdown via the on-off button on the unit. Both Core4 and Core5 respond to a microsecond depress on the power supply button to initiate a shutdown. My crawling grandson, with a curious finger did one for me yesterday. I believe that if possible, the power button the the power supply should be timed so that at least a 1 second depress will trigger a normal shutdown, and the prolonged 4 second depress will let the bios do it's dirty thing.
